Applications for Miss Guyana Teen Scholar 2024 open this weekend

Now in its sixth year, the Miss Guyana Teen Scholar Pageant (MGTSP) opens online applications on May 26 – Independence Day – for candidates desirous of starting their pageant journey and gaining a chance to win a $500,000 scholarship among other prizes.
The pageant for adolescent girls is an education and gender development programme, introducing girls to modules on adolescent health and well-being, professionalism and life skills, social and gender development, and stage presence and talent development. Each candidate is a beneficiary of the programme that adds to a holistic education in preparation for tertiary education, public life, and the workforce. MGTSP is also considered a stepping stone for young women interested in the performing arts, pageantry, fashion, and modelling, as it enhances their interest in stage presence and a platform.
The competition itself assesses elocution, social awareness presentations, interview skills, talent and dance, and presentation style. The programme ends in a graduation ceremony in the style of a public pageant at the National Cultural Centre, where every candidate is celebrated for their identity and expression, and the showcase of their achievements.
The winning candidate is crowned as Miss Guyana Teen Scholar and awarded a scholarship towards her academic and career goals. She also receives a round-trip to a Caribbean island, medical health packages, spa treatment, and band ambassadorship including being a national role model to encourage other girls to pursue their education and ambitions.
The pageant manual and application link can be found on The Imperial House’s Facebook page – @TIHGuyana. Applicants must be citizens and residents of Guyana, be able to travel to Georgetown and be between the ages of 13 and 19.
